Welcome to Year 6
I am looking forward to meeting you next week for our 'Meet the Teacher' Open Evening. I will be talking about the expectations for Year 6 and the day-to-day issues that may arise. It is a general meeting rather than an opportunity to have individual discussions; Parents' Evening is later in the half term but I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have. The children have already had the same information.
The children have had a fabulous start - they have really impressed me with their effort, enthusiasm and behaviour. I've thoroughly enjoyed the week as we've been doing lots of practical tasks - problem solving in Maths, drama in Topic etc.
Baseline Assessment week - we'll be having a go at our first SAT style tests (in class). Scores will be reported back at Parents' Evening.
Wednesday - Roald Dahl Day - we will be taking part in the Virtually Live event in the afternoon
Rocket Launch at the park - 1:15
Open Evening 3:30 and 4:00
Maths - large numbers place value and rounding, negative numbers
English - types of nouns, expanded noun phrases, use of commas, story starts
Topic - life in the trenches
Science - light and electricity
